I'm talking about a level that I clean everything out and do a 50% water change and next morning brown cob webs everywhere. It's just out of control. I've never even seen diatoms from this rapidly even in a saltwater tank.
Everybody talks about lighting and co2 balance but how am I suppose to find the balance? Starting today I will temper orally stop using my t5ho light and just let the led fixture be the only source of light.
When it comes to co2 old folks say run it 24/7 and some others say only run it daytime. I'm just so confused. I'm gonna start running about 1bbs 24/7 and see how that works. Hopefully I won't gas my fish because when I'm at work I have no way to control my tanks. I guess I have to play around with the setting till I find the sweet spot.
I wish so bad if I can have a algae free tank for life. I'm just so tired of scrubbing algae and pulling off BBA from plant leaves.
